Villa Manzu in Costa Rica $16,500 night

The epitome of slow (in the best way), tropical living, Costa Rica has been a sought after destination for vacationers for as long as can be remembered. But when you’re staying at the Villa Manzu estate, it’s far from your ordinary Costa Rican vacation. The estate is home to 8, top of the line villas, making exclusivity (and privacy) the name of the game. Tucked away on 5 lush acres of serene Costa Rican peninsula, Villa Manzu is the getaway of getaways. Our favorite part? All guests have access to the estate’s exclusive wine room, which is stocked with all of our favorites and then some.

The Conrad Maldives on Rangali Island / $50,000 night  

While everyone’s heard about over water bungalows, The Conrad Resort in the Maldives has taken luxury to new depths. And yes we did mean depths because the resort has unveiled their first ever underwater living experience.  The Villa is basically its own private resort, with one sprawling level above water and a breath taking below sea-level wing decked out with underwater views from nearly every angle imaginable. Guests are whisked away to the villa by seaplane jetty and are loaned a private speedboat to travel around the island at their leisure. Personal butlers (yes, plural), private dining, and an on-call personal fitness trainer may all make it seem like it can’t possibly get any better –until we tell you that guests are allotted a 90 minute spa treatment for each day of their stay.
